Insight-130213: State of the Union / Kushman By the Bottle / Kind of Blue

State of the Union - President Barack Obama's 2013 State of the Union address comes at a time when gun control, immigration reform and federal spending limits are center stage. Capital Public Radio National News Reporter Matt Laslo was there and he joins us with a recap of the event. Plus, we'll get reaction to the President's address from two Sacramento-area lawmakers. Democratic Congressman Ami Bera represents California's 7th District, centered in eastern Sacramento County, and Republican Congressman Tom McClintock, who represents California's 4th District, covering parts of the Central Valley and the Sierra Nevada.

Kushman By the Bottle - Capital Public Radio's resident wine expert (and occasional guest host) Rick Kushman joins us for a special Valentine's Day installment of Kushman by the Bottle. He offers advice on choosing the best wines to pair with your romantic dinner, even if that means bringing a bottle to the restaurant. As always, you can expect to hear Rick's wine recommendations as well.

"Kind of Blue" - Sacramento jazz drummer Tim Metz loves Miles Davis' "Kind of Blue" and started thinking about a concert where all of the album's songs would be played in order. He decided to run with the idea and recruited some of the best musicians he could hope to play with. Joe Gilman, Mike McMullen, Tom Peron, David O'Keefe and the great Jeff Clayton answered the call and the supergroup will take on "Kind of Blue" at JB's Lounge as part of the Sunday Night Jazz Series. We'll talk with Metz about his love "Kind of Blue" and also with Vivian Lee, a jazz artist who coordinates the weekly jazz series.

"Kind of Blue" will be performed at 5 and 6:45 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 17 at JB's Lounge, 1401 Arden Way, Sacramento.
